Language challenges and culture ?
In Luxor, there are many Chinese who visit the historic sites, so we have had many Chinese guests at Lotus House.
They often do not speak English and therefore a great challenge when we have to communicate with them. This winter, there were some Chinese guests who had seen a lot of frogs in our garden and it took a long time before we could understand what they meant - they would buy our frogs for cooking - this is just an example - where we finally understood what they meant - others have almost an expectation that we talk Chinese and there are misunderstandings in communication, which we sense - but always try to understand and help as best we can ... but, but, but, often, we see it in their mention of the stay .... some complaints about the stay and at the same time they book a few nights more .....
how do you manage, language challenges? (We speak 4 languages including English)
Lot of holiday wish to all
